THE SEDUCTION OF A DUKE
MacMeans reintroduces William, Duke of Bedford, from The Education of Mrs. Brimley as he hunts for an heiress and love. She knows how to make the pages sizzle and play on readers' fantasies while incorporating intrigue and a solid story into her delectable novels.
Fran experiments with the "advice" in the diary and achieves the desired effect. But there's more to the diary than either of them realizes, as Fran's past reaches out to destroy their marriage. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Apr., 380 pp., $7.99)
